    Hi all, I'm wondering if someone can help me with this app.

    I've downloaded the latest Openstreetmap app onto my Galaxy S3 and downloaded the entire England map, I can view the map and find my location using GPS without a problem but I can't get the navigation to work. I can't seem to find a way to input a destination.
    When I select enter Directions it comes up with From: Current Position but the To: field is populated with coordinates and I'm unable to enter an address.

    Am I doing something wrong or do I need an extra module?

    Cheers.

    NavFree and OsmAnd use OpenStreetMaps and they are able to navigate.
    They've their own download manager for their maps, so you might not able to use your mentioned OSM.

    BTW, I use OsmAnd for hiking, it has topographic layers for its maps :)
